The Awards....

It is unlikely we will be able to host the normal gala awards evening at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge. Therefore the awards are scheduled to be announced via a virtual ceremony hosted by Jim Rosenthal.    

The ceremony will take place on Monday 15 March at a time to be confirmed and will of course be free to access. Whether the attire, food quality and alcohol consumption is up to the usual standards is up to you. 

More information will be revealed in the build-up to the event.
